25 April 2016
Overall impression

A relaxed atmosphere, feels like your grandparents retreat. Some are adversely influenced by the absence of civilization.
Seaside: 5 minutes away by scooter.

Impression of local population

Most are nice and kind, but lazy. It is hard to find a good electrician, plumber (not that you really need them).


The nicest period to live here is September to April with temperatures of 25-35 degrees. It’s hot and raining the rest of the time, making mountains the best option.


Not available in Goa, only in the Indian cities.

Quality of medicine (quality and cost)

Good, might be because India is the cradle of medicine (Ayurveda). Yoga and Ayurveda in Goa are more of a circus. Real Ayurveda is 2 hours away by plane.

Transport (road access, quality of roads, level of driving, gasoline cost, public transportation)

A decent motorcycle costs 500-1000$, a car isn’t necessary.
Going abroad: no.

Housing (cost, availability, rent, purchase)

1000-2000$ per year for a flat or a house.


One of lowest worldwide percentages of violent crime, a moderate number of cases of stealing and dishonest shopkeepers is present.

Women \ men (for dating)

You will have to search for a beauty, but you can be sure that she won’t be spoilt by civilization. An acquaintance found a wife here, she treats him like a maharaja, does all the housework perfectly and massages him too.

Internet access (availability, price)

From 128 Kbit to 10 Mbits, depends on where you live, in many villages only 128 Kbit speeds are available. Cheap.
